30 lemons inspired mum to make 300 LEMON-Y SNACKS!

Lemons. Lemons. Lemons.

Lemons are a MUST in any mum’s kitchen, if we do say so ourselves. From easing constipation symptoms, fighting throat infections and even assisting with weight loss, the health benefits that come with lemons are enormous. Not to mention they are beyond TASTY in recipes and treats.

So, when this mum’s lemon tree was taken over by the yellow-citrus fruit – she was more determined than ever to head to the kitchen and whip up NUMEROUS treats using lemons as the STAR ingredient.

30 lemons and 300 SNACKS later

You’ll never BELIEVE how many snacks Natalie was able to bake with just 30 lemons.

Natalie reveals, “It’s amazing what you can do with just 30 lemons! 300 serves of snacks in fact!

I’ve recently baked my way through these lemons and now have snacks for the whole family to enjoy (for longer than I can imagine).”

Here is what Natalie made using her 30 lemons

1.Lemon and Coconut balls x 45

This lemon and coconut bliss balls recipe comes from our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and is a fun healthy eating snack idea that is packed with heart healthy coconut and the goodness of almonds.

Unlike sweets, chocolate or lollies, you will find that recipes made with ‘good fats’ like coconut fill you up much quickly.

The zest and juice of one lemon combined with the other ingredients will get you 15 serves of this treat.

You can get the recipe on our Healthy Mummy blog.

2.Chia and Lemon Cookies x 46

This is such a delicious and healthy snack. Unlike store-bought cookies – this recipe contains far less added sugar. You could make a batch of the treats at the start of the week so that you have something to pick at between meals.

2 tablespoons of lemon juice will help you make 15 cookies.

3.Lemon and Coconut Slice x 30

So, how will Nat store all THESE TREATS?

Natalie will be freezing her treats! The nifty mum says, “all snacks can be frozen so will last a long time.” 

And what’s the perk of having so many treats on hand?

Natalie reveals, “After loosing 9kg following the Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and using the smoothies daily, I understand the importance of meal planning and meal prep.

“And having healthy snacks on hand means I won’t reach for the bad stuff. 

“My husband and two kids also gave them all the tick of approval so it’s definitely family-friendly. Not to mention, most of the ingredients used are things that I would always have in the pantry.”
